Fourth annual Gopi Podila Memorial Scholarship awarded
Fourth annual Gopi Podila Memorial Scholarship awarded


Senior Maria Torres was presented with the fourth annual Gopi Podila Memorial Scholarship at a ceremony held yesterday by the Department of Biological Sciences at UAH.

Named for the late Dr. Gopi Podila, the $1000 scholarship is sponsored by the Partnership for Biotechnology Research (PBR), of which Dr. Podila was a founding member. It is awarded each year to an undergraduate student in the biological sciences who exemplifies the scholarship's three criteria: academic performance, service to the department, and a demonstrated interest in biological research.

This year, two students - Torres and fellow senior Garrett Dunn - were nominated. "It was a very close vote, as always," says Dr. Debra Moriarity, Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences. "Both of them have a 4.0 grade average, both are double majors in biology and chemistry, and both are very involved in research, so the faculty had trouble choosing between them."

Enterprise Value Stream Mapping

OEIS researchers have provided training in and facilitated hundreds of value stream mapping events. This proven method allows multiple supply chain contributors to collectively develop a map of the supply chain that illustrates the product and information flow as well key performance metrics in an easy to read format.

Utilizing the current state map, the value stream map team can then define an improved future state and implementation plan to optimize supply chain performance.

Value Stream Mapping


The enterprise value stream mapping approach provides the following benefits:

  • A concise view of the supply chain noting critical areas
  • The system understanding needed to focus limited resources at particular companies to provide "best bang for the buck"
  • Communication tool for the customer, prime contractor, and suppliers
  • A "living" document to monitor and manage improvements in the supply chain
